As we sit and wait, and plan to wait our entire lives to be parents - it's really getting depressing here, to be honest. And I'm a happy-go-lucky kind of gal.
So let's talk turkey.
What are your Thanksgiving plans? I'm a little sad, because it's one of my favorite holidays, and I LOVE entertaining for the masses, and we have two frineds coming over - it will be RIGHT up Narda's alley, however, as she LOVES small gatherings. We'll have to evnetually work that one out, as when it's time to get married legally in NY, you KNOW I'll be wanting to throw the party of the century, and Narda would like a small reception for maybe 25 people...Um, add a zero to that, please! :)
So tell me what your plans are, and better yet, tell me HOW you are preparing the bird. Me? I'm doing a brine - I tried it for the first time last year, and I LOVED it - it was EXTRA juicy, and really easy to do, and to keep moist. You can find zillions of brine recipes online, but here's the easy way:
Get a bucket type object. Put the bucket-type-object in the bath tub. Fill it with a BOX of Kosher Salt, a BOX of brown sugar, 2 bags of ice, and put the naked bird in. Fill with cold tap water to cover the bird. leave overnight. Rinse bird off in the morning, and cook as desired.
